josealb77, that error is becaouse of the python command. Mintmenu is writed in python2 and the command 'python' in Arch is for Python3. It worked when I followed this:
However, when I install it, I can't add it to the panel, I do not why.
I hope this helped you.

Thank you isaky. I've been able to compile without errors in that way and reinstall mintmenu. Nevertheless the mintmenu is displayed as it was before. I've tried it all, login out, rebooting, uninstalling it rebooting and installing it again, and so on.
And about what you are experiencing, may be related with my issue. When I go to "add to the panel" (I'm using the spanish version, I hope this to be well translated) I've got 3 bar menus to choose: 1- Menu bar "A personalized menu bar" (this is the MATE default menu); 2- Main menu "The MATE main menu" (this is which I'm using, which isn't displayed as I expected); and 3- mintMenu "Advanced Menu" (I'm not able to add this one to the panel, I click on it but nothing happens).
I guess the last one, the advanced menu, is the one you are trying to add, and maybe is the one that I should be trying to add instead "Main Menu". So, maybe "Main Menu" is being well displayed, but the one which I should add is the advanced menu, the same as you're trying to add, and as result we both are having the same issue: we can't add mintmenu to the panel.

I solved it.
1st- /usr/bin/mintmenu is writen in python2. So there is a line which is not OK. This line is: print "Some stuff" You have add the parenthesis. Like: print("...")
2nd- Add to the /usr/local/bin/python this path: /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintMenu/*
Here there is the code of mintmenu.
3rd- Install the AUR package python2-xlib-svn It's required by mintmenu.
Hope this helped you.

Thank you a lot isaky!!! Since I don't know python I couldn't solve it by myself, and about realizing that python2-xlib-snv was a dependence... unthinkable. In the end we both had the same problem.
I hope twa022 be able to add the parenthesis to the print command and add python2-xlib-svn as a dependence. And if he ports mintmenu to archlinux python default version it would be amazing.
Thank you a lot isaky for your help, ryooichi for the program and twa022 for maintaining it. Now I'm beginning to have my Linux like I want it to be.

Ho provato i cinnamon menu ma idem ... mi servirebbe un menu con la barra di ricerca ... sono solito lanciare i programmi in quel modo ... perdo più tempo ad andare in cerca tra i sotto menu.
Grazie a tutti!!!
P.S. vedo tra i commenti che potrebbe dipendere da python ... possibile che non ce l'abbia installato??? come verifico??? in /usr/local/bin non v'è nulla
Se provo a cercarlo tra i repo mi vengono 3000 pacchetti con quel nome ... come fo???
